Vina Real Rioja Crianza 2015

Rioja, SpainThis wine presents as an honest hardworking red that reflects its origin and grape. It’s a mix of red and dark fruit, with a slippery silky jacket and a core of bright cherry flecked with balsamic/stony, mineral notes. The fruit for Vina Real comes off the Alavesa area of Rioja, it's fermented in stainless before spending 12-14 months in a mix of French and American oak barrels. Like all Cune wines, it’s the bright acidity of tempranillo that attracts, accented by small amounts of garnacha, graciano and mazuelo. A brilliant chicken wine.Tasted: 27 March 2019Tasted by: Prices: BC 21.99 BCLS Producer: Compañía Vitivinícola del Norte de Espana (CVNE)Distributors: Pacific Wine & Spirits Inc.
